Technology

The Walton-Verona Schools believe technology has the potential to transform teaching and learning as an essential component in preparing our students to the meet the realities and challenges of the the 21st century.

Our vision is to utilize emerging technologies to achieve the following goals:
Transform teaching and learning in all classrooms to reinforce 21st century skills.
Utilize Technology as an instructional tool across the curriculum.
Provide ongoing, job embedded professional development.
Eliminate the barriers that prevent all students from having equitable access to technology.

As a student, faculty, or staff member, you have access to services and tools that will help you protect your computer, safeguard personal information, and secure sensitive data. We proactively monitor the network to identify threats and respond to security issues. We are responsible for helping ensure the computing environment is protected from cyberthreats. In addition, we assist administration with adhering to state and federal regulations regarding technology.
